Hilton Sa Torre Mallorca has joined Thomas Cook.

We mentioned last year that Hilton Sa Torre in Mallorca – almost certainly the only Hilton in the world in a 14th century building with its own windmill – was leaving the chain.

This is a shame as it was a surprisingly upmarket hotel which I reviewed here.

For anyone wondering what became of it, it has signed a franchise deal with Thomas Cook and will join the ‘adults only’ Casa Cook chain later this year.

This is a little odd.  Casa Cook

“stands for a new breed of hotels, bringing an urban zeitgeist to the beach. For all who seek a laid-back, stylish and authentic holiday experiences.”

….. which is about the last thing you could have said about the hotel under Hilton management.
